You know, anyone who is still reading this.
The timing these last few days seemed far from perfect. Casper could no longer handle her job. She was puking and vomiting at the sight of all these horrific murders. The only thing left for her to do was quit, she just couldn't do it anymore. Now Casper was trying to look for a new job, while nearing her third month of pregnancy, and dealing with the fact that Logan was going on tour for four months. He'd be gone for most of her pregnancy and both of them were incredibly bothered by it.
Currently the two of them were at Logan's house awaiting the arrival of both of their mothers. Logan was pacing back and forth nervously while Casper sat there drinking a glass of ginger ale, seeming about as a cool as a cucumber.
"How are you not shitting your pants?!" Logan asked stepping in front of her. Casper shrugged and took another sip of soda.
"We have other things to worry about than their reactions."
"Like the fact that you're leaving me in a matter of days for four months." Casper snapped. Logan sighed and before he could respond there was a knock at the door. "We'll talk about that later."
"I'm sure we will." Casper replied. She moved to the living room and took a seat, waiting for the mothers to walk in. Jane and Joanna entered Logan's house and walked into the living room. "Hello Juliette!" Jane smiled and air kissed her daughter on the cheek before taking a seat. Joanna walked over and smiled, "Hi, Casper is it? I'm Logan's mother Joanna. "She stuck her hand out and Casper nodded.
"Nice to meet you Joanna, and yes it's Casper." She nodded and shook her hand. "Please sit."
"Thank you." Joanna sat down on an arm chair while Logan walked around and stood beside Casper, then started to fidget and walk around his coffee table nervously. "Logan? What's the matter you have me nervous."
"Ah well mom there's something I have to tell you ladies." Logan ran his hand through his hair and looked down at Casper nervously before just blurting it out. "Casper's pregnant!"
"Knew it." Jane smiled proudly at herself for already knowing her daughter her was pregnant, while Joann stared with her jaw hanging open.
"How did you know?" The couple questioned.
"Casper's not wearing all black, she's wearing pink, so she's thinking differently. Plus that's a glass of ginger ale; she only drinks that if she's not feeling well. So what would make you not feel well? Morning sickness, from pregnancy." She smirked proudly and stared at her daughter who had a straight face, while Logan's jaw was hanging open.
"How long…?" Joanna asked staring at them.
"Two months." Casper answered with a nod. "We were waiting for a good time to tell the both of you."
"Aren't you going on tour?" Joanna crossed her arms over her chest staring at Logan. "You're going to leave the mother of your child alone while you go on tour for four months and party?" She scoffed; this made Casper smirk and stare up at Logan.
"No! Well….yes and no. She's going to be staying with her roommate while I'm gone."
"Her roommate shouldn't be taking care of her Logan, you should be that's YOUR job not hers. You need to work something out to stay with the mother of your child." Joanna stood up and pinched his cheek. "My little baby is growing up, but for a genius you're a little dumb with women. Either you go on tour and she goes with you, or you don't go. Make that happen." She kissed his forehead and gave Casper a hug while Juliette hugged Logan, lingering a bit longer than she should before air kissing Casper on both of her cheeks and leaving the house.
"Take care you two." Joanna said then began to write her number down on a piece of paper she had pulled out of her purse and handed it to Casper. "That's my number, please feel free to contact me if you ever need to talk about…pregnancy or anything, I've been there." She smiled warmly. "Or if my son is being an idiot and doesn't speak to his manager about taking you on the tour. Which he should be doing."
"Thank you Joanna." Casper smiled with a nod.
"Nonsense, good luck both of you…and Logan I mean it you speak to Gustavo!"
"Yes mom…" Logan muttered as she kissed his forehead. Logan walked his mom to the door and hugged her before shutting it behind her. Casper smirked leaning against the sofa with her arms crossed over her chest and glancing at Logan. "What huh?"
"You're afraid of your mommy."
"…You think yours is a fashionable Satan."
"Least I'm not afraid of her." Casper chuckled. "So what are you going to do Logan? Leave me with Alice for four long months with your unborn child and your angry mother, or are you going to speak to some Gustavo guy?"
"….I'll speak to Gustavo…." Logan muttered nervously.
The boys were down at Rocque Records doing a run through of the set for their tour with Gustavo of course in the front watching them intently. Logan had told them before they started to run through the set that he needed to tell Gustavo about his situation, but he chickened out. He wanted to save it until the end but all he could think about was Gustavo picking him up over his head and snapping his spine like a brittle toothpick. When they were done dancing Gustavo left to make sure everything was ready and precise for the tour. Logan managed to pull himself up off the floor and dragged himself to Gustavo's office.
"Just do it Logan or your mom will kill you." He muttered to try to force himself to do it. He then knocked on the door.
"ENTER!" Gustavo shouted. He took a deep breath and entered the room, standing in front of Gustavo's desk.
"What do you want Logan?" Gustavo questioned not looking up from the paper work he was doing.
"I have a girlfriend." Logan blurted out. Gustavo rolled his eyes and looked up at him.
"I'm well aware of that Logan. Magazines are well aware of that. EVERYONE IS. What is the point?" Gustavo then looked back down at his paper work.
"Uh… my girlfriend is uh…." Logan cracked his fingers nervously.
"My girlfriend is about to be three months pregnant with my kid and since I'll be on tour for about four months I won't be here to take care of her and I can't…." Logan had his eyes closed as he was talking to Gustavo. Gustavo threw his pen down on the table and looked up at Logan.
"Are you trying to tell me that you're trying to not go on tour? I can't have a band and BE MISSING ONE OF YOU!" Gustavo screamed standing up from behind the desk and slamming his hands down on the table.
"N-no! No!" Logan quickly shook his head. "No not at all."
"So then what are you trying to say huh!?" Gustavo questioned.
"I need to have her come on tour so I can make sure she's okay and take care of her!" Logan blurted out and Gustavo crossed his arms over his chest.
"OHHH so just because you decide to have a little unprotected sex with your weird little girlfriend, suddenly I have to cater to your personal needs and bring her on tour because you didn't know how to use a condom! So now the two of you can be on a bus and have more unprotected sex like you're a rock-star with a groupie! That's how it's supposed to be Logan Mitchell?"
"No!" Logan said shaking his head. "It's just that I can't leave her home alone for four months because she's pregnant and …what if she gets sick or something and she needs to go to appointments and I can't just leave her alone." Logan stared at Gustavo hoping Gustavo would lighten up or stop shouting, but he seemed to be un-moved.
"Do you know how difficult it would be to accommodate a pregnant woman on tour Logan? The…bellies, and the mood swings and the weird cravings. I doubt she'll be able to maneuver around in a bus at one point she'll be so big! Plus you boys are party animals; she wouldn't last on a bus with you! I certainly won't be paying for her to have her own bus that's absurd! You should have thought about that before Logan."
"Gustavo I can't just leave her here—"
"You also can't have her staying on a bus for days at a time! Four months from now she probably won't even be able to fit through the toilets of a tour bus Logan! I don't know what you want me to do here pull some sort of miracle out of my ass?"
"Just be reasonable with me Gustavo I'm trying to do what's right!" Logan sighed running a hand through his sweaty hair.
So what shall happen. Should Casper go on tour or stay home with Alice?
